Curious about salaries and stock options for those in the 8-9 year out of law school range who are at Fortune 500s?

Silicon Valley tech: @$200k base, @20% bonus. RSUs worth about $125k that vest over 4/5 years. Sounds like a lot until you look at Bay Area cost of living. Not strictly a manager position, although direct several non-lawyers.

150-160k, no stock options unless you lead a team

Thanks. I’ve experienced something similar.

Varies quite a bit. I feel ... ranging from $120k - $380k. Pro tip - companies rarely give significant increments, year to year. So, negotiate hard going on --that's where you'll remain for years.

Hasn’t been my experience. Went from coming in at $220 to well over double.

Depends where you’ve been and specialization. In the valley, I was at $260 w/ 25% bonus at that point (half stock, half cash).

Mid-west here (you have to do COLAs when looking at salary). I'm 8 years out of law school and $160,000 base with $15,000 pure cash bonus eligible. I think I will be promoted to a new "level soon" which would entail a large raise (10% and 2-3% in the same level). Also they match 150% percent of 401k up to 9% and I have a pension. Health insurance is top of the line too with 5 weeks paid vacation this year.

For those on consular processing for H1B while still in the US. Can you go abroad (Canada) and come back on your valid status without activating your H1B? Assuming you still have a valid EAD/AP?

Anyone did a H1B transfer recently. Can you please share your experience on how much time the process took?

Does the validity period of your state ID or DL usually depend on your h1b expiry date?

I’m surprised so many of you want to “exit to FAANG” - I find Facebook/Amazon/Google to be pretty despicable companies - Apple has questionable moral standards when it comes to making their products, Netflix seems like the best of the bunch.

I’ve been working at the firm for several months now but I do not like my job. I don’t feel like I’m making any impact and my job is sending status updates. I also don’t feel like I’m living up to my full potential. Any advice?

I’ve been on the same project for almost 9 months. What are the benefits to being on a long term engagement? I know there are some, but I’m having trouble seeing them these days...

I have an exit interview coming up. Ive never experienced as many microaggressions as I have in this place, and it not only made me uncomfortable, but messed with myself worth in a bad way which took a toll on my mental health. Should I mention the specific incidents that happened on the exit interview but not name names? Should I just let it go? I want them to know how shitty the culture that allows this is.

My regular GP doesn't take Cigna, which is my new workplace insurance, so looking for a new general practitioner in NYC. Healthy, so mostly for annual physical and the occasional something minor. M/53. UWS preferable or UES would also work. Any recommendations welcome. Thank you.

Do any of you sometimes feel inferior to management/strategy consultants? I sometimes do, and earning an MBA and trying to pivot to that space is always on my mind despite enjoying tech Thoughts?

Are there any openings (NY area) for digital strategy consulting that has exposure to the implementation side of things? I've noticed that alot of "digital strategy" is emphasized on media planning/marketing but wondering more so on the generalist side that includes aspects of planning, product management, implementation/execution, etc.. Thanks in advance folks
